Challenge 229 - Romantic

Hello friends of Time Out!

Happy New Year 2023! We are excited to begin a whole new year of challenges with you. Today's challenge is special in two ways: our 5 new DT members begin their journey today and also we have a new sponsor! Woot woot!

In our first challenge of 2023 we challenge you to be "Romantic". This challenge is generously sponsored by Jane's Doodles with a $20 credit to their store for our winner! Jane's Doodles is run by artist Jane Beljo and the store is located in Zagreb, Croatia. Their high quality stamps are made in UK and USA. Jane's Doodles ships worldwide with very reasonable shipping prices and also sells digital images. Make sure to check out Jane's Doodles if you are not yet familiar with the brand! Our winner also gets called to guest design in a future challenge. 

We welcome Cheryl Even of Even More Scrapping! and winner of Time Out Challenge #226 as our Guest Designer for our first challenge of 2023. Cheryl is an avid scrapbooker, and loves to participate in challenges. Please take a stroll through her wonderful blog and leave her some love.

We love to hear about our Guest Designers in their own words so we can get to know them a bit. Here is what Cheryl had to say:

"Hi everyone! My name is Cheryl Even and I’m very excited to be a guest designer for Time Out Challenges.  A Southern California native, I have been married to my college sweetheart, Greg, for 31 years and am a homeschooling mom for my kids. I am a voracious reader and also love playing Scrabble on my Kindle. I have been scrapbooking since I went to my first scrapbooking party and decided to try it for a month to see if I liked it. 25 years later, I think you could say I stuck with it and loved it! I started designing scrapbook sketches in 2010, and I post my completed layouts and sketches (and the occasional card) on my blog,"

And HERE is Cheryl's fabulous layout for our challenge:

Here's some inspiration from our design team!

Using sponsor stamps In the garden and Happy Day

Gorgeous cards from everyone, I'm sure you agree! Now it's your turn to take Time Out and craft. Before linking up below, please read "How to Play" from the sidebar. We only allow 5 challenges combined, one of them being ours. This challenge runs until 5 pm GMT Wed the 18th of January. Happy crafting! 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
